I see what you mean about the lighting Michael, It works fabulous in these quality photographs. I am amazed at the focus and clairty you achieve here. I think since I am not achieving that myself I tend to shoot moody shots that require the focus to be off a bit. I think the practice part you were talking about is essential. Thank you very much for the advice and comraderie you have shown. Cheers my friend.
